Youth Dharma Program 

Mindful Kids

PIMC’s Youth Dharma Program is a space for children to bring their whole selves.


We offer meaningful opportunities to learn Buddhist teachings and values through engaging activities, stories, games, and art while making friends and having fun! 


Children ages 5-13 are invited to join us every 2nd and 4th Sunday from 10:00 am to 12:00 pm. One parent or caregiver must be present at PIMC while their child attends the program and will need to complete a registration form prior to attending. 

We welcome children of all gender identities, races, ethnicities, cultures, backgrounds, and religions.


In order to create a safe space and a peaceful sangha, each child must be able to engage cooperatively in a small group setting. Parents and caregivers are welcome to accompany their child if their child is in need of additional support. Our intention is to be as inclusive as possible while ensuring a safe and welcoming space for all in attendance.


If you value the opportunity for children to develop mindfulness and cultivate compassion practices, please consider making a donation to the Youth Dharma Program’s virtual Dana bowl or purchasing something from the program’s wish list. These donations allow us to maintain our program and provide enriching activities for our children. We appreciate your generosity and support!


We look forward to welcoming your child to the PIMC Youth Dharma Program Children’s Sangha!

Dana and Generosity

While there is no cost to enroll in the program, we do rely on the generosity of parent, family, and community support to keep the program funded. If you’re able, please consider a suggested donation of $20 per child, per class. This supports the teachers and provides engaging activities, games, and arts and crafts for the children.
